This is a recent contribution presenting Kouzes and Posner's deep expertise and data on leadership (over the years they've surveyed more than 2 million people from around the world) . Building from the foundations presented in The Leadership Challenge, Learning Leadership takes on damaging myths that may be holding you back. Many of these are tough to read as they take away excuses you may have lurking in the back of your mind (speaking from personal experience). As you're seeing in this list, I like actionable books. This one gives you chances to pause for preparation, then guides you through next steps to take action. My favorite nugget: "Great leaders are great learners." Excellent advice now, and for our futures of work.
About my Fall Reading List: Some of these books are new for 2017. Others, published before 2017, may be even more important now than they were when first published... at least for me. You'll see a clear focus on the future of work, as well as some heavy hitting general management books. Some link to my earlier reviews, others I'll just share what I was looking for and what I found. If these sound good to you, here is a set from prior years.
I'm trying something new and will be posting one a day. How long will this take? Depends on how fast I read! I started the list early in the summer, but still have a few in the hopper. Here is the full list if you can't wait. Disclaimers: Where I have received a free copy, I have also purchased at least one more. I am using affiliate links.
